Active Directory (Azure AD) is Microsoft’s multi-tenant cloud based directory and identity management service. If you are an Office365 or Dynamics CRM Online customer, you might not realize that you are already using Azure AD. Every Office365, Azure and Dynamics CRM tenant has an Azure AD tenant. You can use the same AD tenant to manage access to thousands of other cloud applications Azure AD integrates with.
SECURITY STARTS WITH ACTIVE DIRECTORY!
Active Directory (AD) is a Microsoft developed service that arranges all Network users, computers and other objects into logical hierarchical groupings. For many years, Windows networks have been depending on AD to
maintain a central source of information for authentication and access permissions. Now that cloud computing is such an integral part of today’s business, it is so important to extend AD into the cloud to ensure highly
secure environments. With AD, you can have layered security,
one that has policies and permissions for security at different levels. AD is easily scalable and highly flexible with its use, and objects can be located anywhere physically while the domain/network resources can
be accessed securely.
Capabilities include: device registration, self-service password management, self-service group management, privileged account management, role based access control, application usage monitoring, rich auditing and security monitoring and alerting. These capabilities can help secure cloud based applications, streamline IT processes, cut costs and help assure corporate compliance goals are met.
Flexible and secure authentication and authorization services provide protection for data while reducing barriers to doing business over the Internet. AD supports multiple authentication protocols: Kerberos V5 protocol, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) v3, and Transport Layer Security (TLS) using X.509 v3 certificates, to name a few.
